Ingredients:
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup boiling water
1 Tablespoon shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cocoa
1-3/4 cup flour
1/2 chopped nuts

Dissolve the baking soda in boiling water and soak the raisins for half an hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream shortening with sugar. Add egg, vanilla, cocoa, and the raisin mixture. Blend in flour. Add the nuts. Place batter in a 5 x 9-inch loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes.

Although raisins were usually substituted for dates, in our family it was always called date and nut bread. Cream cheese is delicious on this bread. At the Inn, we serve it made up into little sandwiches.
